If I was doing the wiring I would vote for the separate runs of wire. If your panel will not hole the extra cir's well then it is time to up grade to a larger cir. panel
well I just had the panel upgraded.. I have a 1300 sq ft house and it it 100amp main breaker.
I have a 20 space breaker box and 6 are open right now. I am going to do a leg off for the garage, and just rewire the kitchen and try to get the bedrooms on their own, so I will use maybe 4 tandems (I was told 8 is the limit in that panel.)
But thanks for the thoughts... going to just start runnning wires I suppose....
